At age 25, Elizabeth II, the ‘accidental queen’, became Britain’s fortieth monarch and vowed to dedicate her life to service and duty on behalf of her country. She is the constitutional monarch of sixteen sovereign states, head of the fifty-three member Commonwealth of Nations, Supreme Governor of the Church of England, and head of the armed forces. Most notably, however, on 9 September 2015 she will have become the longest reigning monarch in British history – a rule that has witnessed the terms of twelve prime ministers and seven popes. She has consistently adapted in order to remain relevant, while devotedly upholding the age-old traditions of the monarchy. Although there have only been six British female monarchs, it cannot be argued that some of the most enlightened times in history have occurred during periods of queenship. Elizabeth I led the country through the Golden Age and Victoria ushered in the Industrial Revolution, but it is Elizabeth II who will leave the most illustrious and progressive legacy of all.
